(2) Ball head with threaded stud; (1) ¾ inch Spade Drill Bit; (1)

Raise your Viper trunk to as high as you want it to open. Find
something to safely prop up the trunk lid in that position while you
Take out the Lift Arm and hold it up to in the position you want it to
be in when
the trunk lid is all the way open. Line up the Lift Arm so that the top
is about 1 inch away from the trunk lip (see photos). Mark the center
of where the top of the lift arm will attach to the trunk lid.
Take the 5/16 inch drill bit and drill a hole through the side of the
black trunk lid all the way through to the other side. (see photos)
Now take the large ¾ inch spade drill bit and center it on the hole that
you made on the “inside” of the trunk lid. (see photos)
This will give you room to reach in with a socket wrench to screw on the
nut to the secure the top of the lift arm to the trunk lid.
Take one of the two ball screws included and insert it into the 5/16
inch hole you drilled on the outside of the trunk lid. Attach the nut
from the inside of the trunk lid where you drilled the ¾ inch hole.
Now extend the trunk to the maximum upright position and swing the lift
arm down into position where it will fasten to the trunk opening on the
back of the car. Ensure your mark is accurate. Now drill a 5/16 inch
hole into the black housing inside the trunk opening. (see photos).
Insert the 5/16 ball screw Reach inside the trunk compartment and up
under and behind the black plastic lip to screw on the nut.
Open and close the trunk to ensure a tight and close and ensure that it
opens completely and stays up.
